A grandson is charged with murder after the body of his grandmother was found inside a home in Graves County, Kentucky. 

Sheriff Dewayne Redmon says neighbors found 87-year-old Linda Pittman dead Thursday afternoon. The home is on Barnes Street in Water Valley. 

Deputies arrested Michael Castleman Thursday. Redmon says Castleman told investigators that he got into a physical fight with Pittman.

Castleman was jailed in the Graves County Jail Thursday night. He's also charged with robbery. 

Pittman's autopsy is scheduled for Friday.
